Schenck v. United States, 249 U.S. 47 (1919)

The US Supreme Court limited the constitutional right of free speech.

For the first time in history, the Court held Congress had a right to create exceptions to the US Constitution's First Amendment Free Speech Clause when exercising that right could create a "clear and present danger" to US military recruitment efforts during war and jeopardize national security.
